PARSA--Gretchen W., age 73, passed away November 12, 2013, after a brief, but brave and resolute battle with cancer. A resident of Bronxville, NY, her devotions included support of hospital volunteer programs, animal humane organizations, and alumni administrative support of her undergraduate sorority. She was particularly fond of her newer role as grandmother. She lost her husband in 2004 to cancer as well. She is survived by her son, Cyrus and his wife Suzanne, and her grandsons Aiden, Hayes, and Andrew. A family service is planned in Chicago. The family appreciates the support and compassion demonstrated by her friends and extended family during her illness. May she rest in peace.
